We have observed with rapt attention, some intellectual chicanery who are hiding under online satires to infamy and besmirch respected persons in our society.
First of all we must understand that our society do not understand satire but take it to be a true story. A case for cogitation is a satire online portal “screwlife” which recently published a story with caption “Bishop Obinim claims he can make All NDC supporters oversleep to 7pm on election day”
You will all agree with me that this is ludicrous but there are people including intellectuals who will give undeserved credence to this story.
This website writes misleading stories about Bishop Daniel Obinim, his wife and his ministry unabated. To add more salt to injury; they don’t even indicate in the story that it is a satire and some bollixed radio stations review these stories. These stories are taken by the public as true stories.
Just this morning, I received a call from Obuobo Fm to confirm the above story. Many are those who will not call to get clarifications. We have seen this story being circulated on various social media platforms.
Satire is intended to create humour but in this story there is nothing humorous. It leaves us with no thinking but that, it is a calculated attempt to use the name of Bishop Obinim to cause him public disaffection. The intention, time and the atmosphere in which a satire is published is very important and as the country goes for an election such a satire has only one intention.
I will like to state clearly that actions will soon be taken if such stories about Bishop Daniel Obinim and his ministry are not ceased.
You use the name of such a great man of God to sell your work in absurd way, that is evil and Machiavellian.
Today it is Bishop Obinim so everyone is quite, tomorrow it will be you, your father or somebody you apotheosize so much.
1 Corinthians 1:18
For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing,but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
